Originating from Russia in the 19th century and dubbed “Russian Gold” the world has fallen in love all over again with rose gold or pink gold, which has a timelessly feminine appeal that has given way to a rising demand for rose gold engagement rings. But don’t let its growing desirability put you off – rose gold is not a passing trend to be forgotten in time, it has recently grabbed the attention and stolen the hearts of craftsmen and jewellery lovers alike, who are adding it to their permanent mix of design must-haves.
Made from gold and a copper alloy which gives 18k rose gold its pinkish colour while having the added benefit of strengthening the metal,rose gold engagement rings have a romantic, vintage look that brings out the blush tones in the skin and compliments most skin tones.
Just like the relationship a ring should honour in its beauty, rose gold is precious, strong and forgiving, while appearing delicate on the finger. Often used as a complimentary setting for diamonds with warmer undertones, rose gold is not as flashy as white gold or yellow gold, instead softening the effect of the diamond with a gentle, understated elegance.
Rose gold also banishes the age old rule that you wouldn’t mix and match your jewellery metals together, pairing beautifully with white gold and yellow gold, sometimes even in the same jewellery creation.
With an antique look that gives rose gold jewellery a notion of exclusivity, the romantic pink metal is also synonymous with the colour of love, making rose gold engagement rings the perfect expression of the coming together of two soul mates who intend to spend their lives together.
Most of Shimansky’s rings, like the Millennium, can be made in rose gold.
